Strawberry Social Quilt

 sandra1

This is Sandra’s Strawberry quilt that she made for her daughter who is excepting her second baby any day now!  The pattern is called Strawberry Social by the Pattern Basket but you can buy it as a kit with these fabrics from Fat Quarter shop here.  They call the kit Strawberry Shortcake.    Sandra loves lots of quilting on her quilts and said “quilt it flat!”   That is always fun to do on a small quilt. :)

sandra4sandra2 Sandra loves feather so I quilted feathers going clockwise in the outer border and counter-clockwise in the inner border.  Then feathers in the sashing columns, alternating directions.  Did a simple wavy design on the strawberries and used three different pink threads to match the colours in the strawberries.  Did leaves in the green stems and curls in the background.  In the small horizontal sashing I did the Onions and Garlic design, one of my favourites as it is fun to quilt.

The backing is really cute too!

Managed to get one ice picture as it is still getting down to –10’c at night but suppose to get up to +3’ today.  It’s very windy so I was very lucky to get his shot!   If your wondering how much snow we still have this should answer that!

Our guild Quilt Show is on April 25 and 26 so I have been busy getting ready for that this week so haven’t done much quilting.  Next week will get even crazier but I will share pictures of the show.  We have 165 quilts entered and it makes for a beautiful display in our community hall.
